Vita: ILS and risk transfer
Insurance-linked securities (ILS) transfer insurance-related risks to the capital markets. Investors in these securities usually receive an attractive fixed interest rate, and in return, the funds they pay can be used to pay out an underlying reinsurance contract if and when it is needed. This effectively allows an insurance or reinsurance company to tap into the additional risk capacity offered by capital markets.
